I guess because the classic rock station I listen to doesn't really identify the songs unless it either just played and finished a set or it's kicking off a set - they do "40 minute rock blocks," or whatever, with almost no blather in between (and no commercials).

Radio sucks that way! TV radio or iTunes radio is so much more helpful in that respect. But yes, there's been many songs that I didn't know who sang them, even as recently as Jimmy Eat World doing "Get it Faster." Had no idea it was them for ages! And when I realized, it was "Oh, of COURSE!"

One time I was on my way home from work and loved the song so much that I actually e-mailed the DJ to find out who it was. Turned out to be Jackson Browne doing The Load Out/Stay. OMG, LOVE.

My biggest "Holy crap, he sings that?" moment came when I saw Rod Stewart (I work in an arena and see everyone) - I knew every single song that he did, I just never knew who sang them.
